I'm trying to set a directory architecture with a syncrepl push
replication, as (partly) stated in the admin guide, chapter 16.1.1.
I have a provider slapd with bdb, an intermediate slapd with back-ldap, which
points to a consumer slapd with bdb.
First, I have to set an updateDN on the consumer slapd, else back-ldap gets a
"no user modification allowed" error on operational attributes
(structuralobjectclass, contextcsn) when it tries to update the consumer slapd
That is expected.
(the admin guide says the opposite).
I guess the Admin Guide has a bug then. What exact section are you referring to?
Then this does not work at all when modifying an entry, because
back-ldap gets a
"modify/delete: hasSubordinates: no such attribute" error when it tries to
update the entry.
That's also expected, since hasSubordinates is a dynamically generated
operational attribute (and also read-only, as I recall). You need to exclude
any dynamically generated operational attributes from the syncrepl search.
E.g. 2.4's test045 specifically tests this scenario, and the syncrepl spec uses:
retry="5 5 300 5"
In general, while this is known to work in 2.3, you're better off using 2.4.
(We intentionally did not include test045 in 2.3...)
